abc news that he had quit his job, sold all of his belongings, and was moving to hawaii. >> this is the last thing i ever expected, especially from him. he was just too sweet. he was never mean to anybody. >> reporter: tammy roberts, roberts aunt who raised him, also has no answers. >> she has no understanding or explanation for her son's behavior. she's very sad and wants everyone to know she's so sorry what jake did and it's so out of his character. >> reporter: sunny hostin, abc news, new york. >> just to reiterate, police believe and authorities believe he stole the gun that he used in the rampage. they searched his home and car, but ex-girlfriend, she had been with him a year, his mother -- not his biological mother, his aunt, said completely out of character. his girlfriend texted him over the weekend. he was supposed to go to hawaii. did you make it safely? he said he got drunk and missed his flight. she doesn't even know if he bought a ticket. >> she said something chilling too. she says, i don't understand. i was just with him. i just talked to him. i didn't bel
. criminal charges against him were dropped. >>> the state of hawaii is no longer 50th in voter turnout. it's tied for 49th with west virginia. this time around, they've got company at the bottom. both west virginia and hawaii tenned out 44.2% of its voters in 2012. >>> the duke of cambridge decided to cancel a scheduled appearance at a military event to be with his pregnant wife. katherine has been battling acute morning sickness. they are supposeded to attend the royal premiere of "the hobbit" tomorrow but the daily mail says katherine may not be well enough to go. >> if he skips the hobbit for her, that is true love. i'll be impressed. >> thank you. 17 minutes past the hour. time for early reads, local news making national headlines. we're starting with the charlotte news and observer in north carolina where a federal judge ruled the state cannot issue choose life license plates without offering ones with different view points. he called it viewpoint discrimination and violation of the first amendment. pro-choice advocates and the aclu praised that decision but the ruling suggests, they
and planning was to move to hawaii but apparently missed a flight over the weekend. life long dream of his. friend of his says roberts was depressed about a breakup with his girlfriend. the two may have been evicted in june from an apartment. there is also a report he quit his job at a sandwich job abruptly last month. the lone surviving gunshot victim, 15-year-old girl is lucky to be alive because the bullet passed through her back. but hit no vital organs. >> this caseua, we saw is that despite the bullet probably not penetrating her chest, it produces a large blast effect. i think most of her injuries were a result of the blast effect, result of a high velocity weapon. >> she is expected to fully recover. >> it probably saved a lot of lives. >> yeah. absolutely. we heard last night there were a couple of shots off the bat and then a pause. that pause may have given crucial time for people who are right in the food court to get away from the gunman. also the mall and the local police had practiced for a scenario just like what happened yesterday within the last year. cops were on the sce
to participate. it's disappointing. we would have been better off if he stayed in hawaii golfing. >> "new york times" writer david brooks said president obama governs like a visiter visiter a morally superior civilization. successful presidents use force of their personality to persuade. clinton was like that. ronald reagan did that too. is that what this president is missing? >> it is, his strategy has been to stay out of the fray this weekend because he wants the blame to be on congress, which has about a 10% approval, versus his 55% approval. the president a not good and arm twisting. he knows he won the election and has public opinion on his side. he believes sooner or later the republicans will cave. >> here's the beef. republicans say you want $600 billion in new spending, which would absolutely negate the 600 billion-dollar in new tax revenue, so this doesn't -- this is a deal that's got no beef. where's the peeve? it doesn't attack -- beef? it doesn't attack debt and deficit. >> they're raising taxes and increasing spending. this is how we get into this mess. i can't believe this is th
in hawaii to cost the taxpayers $4 million. he is just going to blame the republicans and let the taxes go up on everybody. host: grace says -- guest: medicare's costs have grown slower than the private insurance market. even though it is a big expense for the federal government, it would be even more expensive if we were growing at the same rate of private insurance. medicare has millions and millions of patients and to negotiate much lower rates. on the flip side of that, the issues we talked about earlier about doctors not wanting to participate. medicare has a huge population so they are able to streamline a lot of the education costs. host: another comment on our twitter page -- guest: malpractice is an issue that came up in the health care debate but did not move for that much. it is one solution that might make doctors more comfortable in their practice, that they are now worried about getting sued all the time. most of the estimates show it most of the estimates show it would be relatively small in the world of health care spending. it is something that comes up in the debate. host
to the funeral of senator inouye and that has created that service that will take place in hawaii has created a challenge for us when it relates to the schedule itself. we understand this is a difficult, difficult time. but we need to work together to put into place pro-growth economic policies. i think that there, as i said in my opening remarks, a bipartisan quest to do that. i congratulate the president for his call in reduction from the corporate tax rate from 35% to 25%. real tax reform. something we have been trying to do for a while and i think can be done in a bipartisan way. real entitlement reform that does not hurt our fellow americans is something that can be done in a responsible way. so i will simply say that this is not a perfect process. but it's end of the session process going on right now to deal with a tough, tough situation. we don't want our fellow americans to be hurting, especially at this time of year as we look towards the christmas holidays. and i believe that we can see an agreement which will work to ensure that that does not take place. so, mr. speaker, i urge my
